Donors like you make it possible

you are the heroes that make the world a better place

Together we can provide safety and security for America’s children. It will result from our collective public investment to our country’s most vulnerable citizens, children who desperately need a life free of violence and fear. Your support helps to prevent and stop exploitation of children! Thank you for propelling this mission forward!

Safety and security don’t just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear.” – Nelson Mandela

SPECIAL MESSAGE: How We are funded

10.18 is a grassroots organization that is child-centered! We prioritize the interest of the child above all else! Therefore, we have committed NOT to apply or receive government funding. No matter how great the intention or efforts are, it is impossible to serve two masters. Government funding requires the interest of that government contract to be prioritized, resulting in a secondary focus on the child. We know the government model isn’t working. And we are unwilling to modify our mission to pursue these funds. Therefore, 10.18 is supported solely by private donations and grants. Consequently, we cannot do this vital work without your support!
